As much as I like to get all dolled up, I very rarely spend a lot of time on getting ready. On average, I probably spend about 10-15 minutes on getting ready day to day. I try to put myself together before Juliette wakes up but that often doesn’t happen. Usually it’s more like me throwing on make-up while she is rearranging my makeup-drawer and trying on every shade of lipstick that I own ;), brushing through my hair and calling it a day. This is why I love finding the best and easiest products! I love any product that is quick and simple to use but will still give me amazing results. Here are my five go-to products that I use every day (in order) to look & feel more put together.
Estee Lauder Day Wear Face Cream – After trying what feels like every cream on the market, I think I have finally found my perfect match. I have been loving this face cream and I truly look forward to putting it on each morning and night. My skin tends to be very dry so I am always searching for a super hydrating face cream. This one has been so good for my skin (it feels much more hydrated) and my make-up has been going on much more evenly. Before using this cream my forehead was so dry that make up would just flake off of it. Since using this cream, I haven’t really had that problem! It is one of my all-time favorite face creams…. and I have tried a lot!
YSL All Hours Concealer – After putting on my Estee Lauder Face Cream, I reach for this product. This is my secret weapon to not looking tired!! It will seriously take you from looking like you’ve been up all night and are running on empty to a bright-eyed, well-rested lady (in seconds!). It hides my dark circles, helps cover under eye bags and any other imperfections that I want to cover. It’s very light weight and doesn’t look too caked on when you’re wearing it.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup – Once I have put on my face cream, and concealer it’s time to even out my skin tone. This is definitely more of a fuller coverage face product so if I don’t need to wear much make-up that day I will just throw on a tinted moisturizer. However, if I want a little more coverage, I use this product. A little bit goes a long way! It’s a great weightless texture and leaves your skin looking flawless. It is definitely a long-wear product that lasts all day.
YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch – I am in love with this product. It’s not a concealer but I use it like one after I put on my foundation. I like to use my all hours concealer underneath my foundation and then use this on top. It leaves the prettiest, highlighted look under your eyes that will open them up and make them look brighter! It’s super light-weight but definitely makes a difference! It’s a very easy application too. You simply click the top of the ‘pen’ and apply it directly to the areas where you want to use it. I use a beauty blender to blend it in but your finger would work fine as well!
YSL Touche Eclat Glow Shot – The last thing I reach for is this Touche Eclat Glow Shot by YSL. The name says it all! Instead of applying a lot of blush or bronzer during the week, I just dab this on my cheek bones and it gives me a nice rosy, highlighted glow. It’s buildable so you can make it as noticeable as you’d like. It can work alone or with other products and is the perfect finishing touch to my easy, every day make-up routine! I also like that it is a liquid and is not a powder… sometimes when I use too many powders I feel like my skin tends to look dry. I highly recommend this product!
So there you have it. An easy, five product make-up routine that will leave you looking put together in no time!
Also, I always throw on a quick lip gloss and full disclaimer, I recently got eyelash extensions so I don’t have to apply mascara. Before I had them, it would have been more like a six-step make-up routine because mascara is crucial!! 🙂 Hope you have a wonderful day!
